The Swedish car manufacturer has teased a new supercar – Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut, which, as many believe, will be the fastest car ever made. It is the modified version of Jesko. The latter is a powerful roadster. But Absolut has better performance and characteristics, some of which are presented below.
Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut Improvements
The reason behind the speed of Jesko Absolut is the low drag combined with 1600bhp.The research and analysis for making Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut the ultimate car took more than 3,000 hours, applying the perfect aerodynamics and fluid dynamics, and another 2,000 hours were spent on designing this machine. A significant improvement was the removal of the rear wing. Because of that, the car experienced reduction in downforce from a high 1400 to low 150kg.
In order to achieve better aerodynamics the rear part was rounded from edges. Its designers had to stretch the car longer. Now because of that, Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut is 8.5 centimetres longer than the original Jesko. The engines lying under the hood of both powerful machines are twin-turbo V8s. To levitate some of the weight of the car, V8 crankshaft was applied. Its weight is 12.5 kilograms. The peak of the performance is 8500 rounds per minute.
LST and UPOD Systems of the Supercar
Another significant feature of Jesko Absolut of Koenigsegg is the Light Speed Transmission setting. Gear changes to any level are not a problem for this car, as it works quite fast- within an eye blink. The gearbox levels are that of 9-speed. Concentrating the weight at the centre of the car enables better handling on higher speeds. Maximum acceleration inside this car is possible due to UPOD technology. This innovation in car manufacturing optimizes gear selection. combine that with the LST, and you get a jet on the road!
Wishbones of Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut resemble those of Formula 1 cars. Stability is the key factor in performance. Adjustable dampers are another cool feature that popup with this car. The foldable roof and spacious front for luggage make Absolut drivers feel comfortable. The front screen is wide enough to concentrate on a larger area of the road and its surroundings.
The Amenities of Jesko Absolut
Autoskin system is available inside the car. Unlike previous models, Jesko Absolut’s doors open up a bit higher, which reduces the possibility of scratches from outside. Interior is Rich with carbon fiber, glass, aluminium, leather and alcantara. The variety of inner colours enable to choose anything matching your taste. With the help of Smart Center touch screen electric controlling of the seats, you get a whole new level of comfort inside this supercar.
Moreover, SmartCenter system has got a sibling with the name SmartWheel, the latter being connected on the steering wheel. With a touch or a swipe, you gain control over many electric features of the car. Phone control, cruise control are so easy now to access by the steering wheel. Reversing camera and four smart airbags are responsible for the safety of the driver. And for the parking system, the famous bird’s-eye technology is used.
The Brand surely, will not stop producing amazing and high-performance supercars like Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut, and these smart tech cars will not be affordable for many either.
